46 true/false and multiple choice questions about life in the United States during the Great Depression. You could use these as a "teaser" or interest-generator when you first begin your study of the Great Depression, or use them after presenting the material to see how many of the basics your students have grasped. These are great discussion starters and help students visualize the real life problems Americans encountered from 1929 to 1939.
These questions are at the basic level and focus on how the Great Depression affected the ordinary person. They emphasize intriguing facts such as people collecting coal falling from trains in order to heat homes and cook. They also cover Hoover's lack of success in dealing with the economic downturn.
TEACHERS DESERVE OPTIONS!
That's why this download will provide you with two different versions of this Great Depression worksheet: a reusable one that can be copied off and used over and over, and a consumable one designed for students to write on. You know your students best -- you can decide which of the formats is best suited to your classes.
A full answer key is, of course, provided.
